The Alberta Pulse Showcase JAN 16 2017 | Consumers | Event and News Release
The Alberta Pulse Showcase was a successful Alberta event as part of the 2016 International Year of Pulses celebration. In partnership with the Alberta Pulse Growers and Alberta Agriculture & Forestry’s Food and Bio-Processing Branch, new products were developed with industry partners that used Canadian peas, beans, faba beans and their fractions.
Products presented at three Alberta Pulse Showcase events in 2016 included:
- Ready-to-eat meat bars
- Old-fashioned black and red licorice
- Hot Italian and chorizo sausages
- Decadent, rich chocolate cake
- Thin and crispy chips
- Sweet, delicate macarons
- Savoury beef patties
- Frozen vanilla and chocolate flavoured desserts
- Healthy dog treats
Continuing beyond 2016, the goal is to further increase awareness and the local consumption of pulses and pulse ingredients in value-added food products.
